Darkness

It's dark in here, no, it's black.
I don't like it here, I want to depart.
There's no way out that I can see,
This is in me, it is my heart.

Love is in here, somewhere in the dark,
Love is in here, I cannot see,
Love is in here, it's hiding from me.
Love is in here, Jesus, please help me to see.

My love is in darkness, so no-one can see,
What love can I impart, from a cold closed heart.
Jesus, my friend, my Master, my brother,
Let Your light shine, through the darkness inside.

Let Your light shine, so bright in my heart,
Shine so bright that the dark will depart.
For a heart without darkness is a wonderful place,
Where love can forever mingle with Grace.

    I do like the way you write Dave. I'm wondering if all your witting's have a spiritual tone to them. I've wrote a few myself. I think my first one posted was about angels. I shall have to read more from you. Have a great day ;)

    No, Debbie, not all but some. Most comes from my life as me. Some from Out of the blue, some from my walk with God. Thank you for your comments.
